LG OLED Video Wall recognized at AV Technology Europe Awards 2018

The LG OLED Video Wall signage has been awarded under the category of “Best Use of Projection/Display Solutions” at the first ever AV Technology Europe Awards 2018. The awards held in Amsterdam were dedicated to recognizing innovation and achievements in AV throughout end-user businesses.
Kevin Cha, president, LG Electronics, Middle East & Africa, said: “Digital signage industry today is paving way for unprecedented growth and creativity to create attractions that are a cut above the rest and our world record-breaking LG OLED Video Wall truly exemplifies LG’s commitment toward proactively contributing to this phenomenal evolution. We are extremely pleased to be associated with world-renowned partners on this exciting project which continues to create success stories further reaffirming an OLED era in the coming years.”
The award-winning video wall at The Dubai Mall was unveiled by Emaar Entertainment in August 2017 taking digital signage into a whole new realm and scoring a hat-trick of record titles, in partnership with LG: Largest OLED screen, highest resolution video wall and largest high-definition video wall.
The wall is 50-meters wide, with a wave-like configuration spanning two storys and is fully visible from the ground floor at The Dubai Mall, the world’s most visited retail destination.
LG OLED screens have resulted in superb images with the deepest possible blacks and life-like colors as well as wider viewing angles than conventional backlit displays.
The mega-sized video wall was created using 820 LG Open Frame OLED signage panels. All functions and the user interface were tailored to meet the venue’s specific requirements.
The use of LG’s Open Frame OLED signage at the Dubai Aquarium was particularly fitting because the curved form factor of the display follows the undulations of flowing water. The LG Open Frame OLED signage can be configured into both convex and concave curves in both landscape and portrait modes, blending into any public and private space.
The nomination for the award category was initiated by Dataton as part of the efforts to promote the video wall on an international platform.

Emirates NBD opens branch in Alkhobar

Emirates NBD, a banking group in the Middle East, has expanded its presence in the Kingdom with the opening of its first branch in Alkhobar in the Eastern Province. Emirates NBD now covers three key regions in Saudi Arabia with a presence in Riyadh, Jeddah and Alkhobar. 

As Saudi Arabia progresses plans for economic reform, in line with its Vision 2030, Emirates NBD’s presence builds on the growing economic and trade ties between Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Following the establishment of the Saudi-Emirati Coordination Council, the UAE and Saudi Arabia recently announced The Strategy of Resolve, a joint vision for economic development through 44 joint strategic projects within a five-year time frame. 

UAE-based Emirates NBD is the first non-Saudi bank with a significant branch network across the Kingdom. The bank offers retail, private, business and wholesale banking across its network of three full-fledged branches in the Kingdom, in addition to corporate finance advisory, project and syndicated finance through Emirates NBD Capital KSA, the bank’s investment banking arm.

Emirates NBD also operates in Egypt, India, Singapore, and the UK with representative offices in China and Indonesia. 

“Our presence in Saudi is integral to Emirates NBD’s growth strategy as we continue to explore opportunities in the GCC region’s largest and most dynamic economy,” said Hesham Abdulla Al-Qassim, vice chairman and managing director of Emirates NBD. 

“Saudi Arabia is in the midst of a landmark economic transformation and we look forward to continuing to support Saudi individuals and businesses looking for a trusted banking partner.” 

Emirates NBD recently renewed its partnership with the Kingdom’s Kafalah Program, which aims to promote financing to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) within the country.

Loai Abduljawad, CEO of Emirates NBD KSA, said: “Emirates NBD’s expanded network strengthens our offering to individuals and corporates in Saudi Arabia looking to invest and trade across the MENA region and beyond. Our superior value proposition, built on the bank’s unique ‘high tech + high touch’ philosophy of offering customers a modern banking experience complemented by personalized advisory services, will enable us to strengthen customer acquisition in the Kingdom as we continue to support the country’s long-term growth and development goals, as outlined in Saudi Vision 2030.” 

Emirates NBD is a leading banking group in the region. As of June 30, 2018, its total assets were 477.5 billion dirhams, ($130 billion). The group has a significant retail banking franchise in the UAE and is a key participant in the global digital banking industry, with over 90 percent of all financial transactions and requests conducted outside of its branches. The bank was declared the “Most Innovative Financial Services Organization of the Year” at the 2017 BAI Global Innovation Awards.
